Mess Scam in IIT Roorkee
For the session 2011-12, three hostels Messes with 600 students capacity each (Total 1800 students), have been privatised and to the shock for many, it was given to a single Contractor ‘Gemini Caterers Pvt LTd’ .
Since after Privatisation there has been no Monitoring Authority appointed by the IIT Rookree, as a result the services in these mess are ridiculous. For instance, one of the mess has been fined Rs 56,000 last month and its manager has been sacked ,for serving poor quality of food.
There must have been several kickbacks for this tender.Please file an RTI (drafted below) for the same.
